How did you get on with Steve????

By the way, it's actually pronounced Hawki. 

I've been away for a bit and missed stuff, I'm interested to learn the goss on
the forthcoming high hedges legislation. AMIUG provided info for consultation,
we've heard nothing since. It would seem that government are running with
option 4 - is this official? When is this likely to come into effect - Are the
high hedges and fox slaughter agenda on the same bill??? 

On a separate note, I have a complaint - The Metropolitan Borough of Wirral, 
Merseyside, has a Tree Officer who obviously doesn't know the difference
between an apple tree and a lavatory - his arb spec is designed to mutilate 
urban vegetation of north east Wirral by the provision of a 50%-70% reduction
of London Plane/street trees - I'm convinced that the sole purpose of the
Authority is to keep 3 men, vehicle and chipper in work during the Winter
months, prior to their more demanding grass mowing duties during Spring and

As Arborists, please visit Wirral and be appauled!!
